PVC imports to Russia up by 20% in January-August, exports down by 13%

September 24/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Imports of suspension polyvinyl chloride (SPVC) into Russia totalled 42,700 tonnes in the first eight months of 2021, up by 20% year on year. At the same time, exports decrease by 13%, according to MRC"s DataScope report.

Last month"s SPVC imports to Russia exceeded 14,000 tonnes from 8,700 tonnes in July. Good seasonal demand and a shortage of polymer from Russian producers led to a jump in imports in July-August.

Overall imports totalled 42,700 tonnes in the first eight months of 2021, compared to 35,700 tonnes a year earlier, with PVC from China accounting for the main increase in imports.

After a spike in May export sales, driven by high prices in foreign markets, exports of Russian SPVC decreased permanently in the following months.

6,100 tonnes of PVC were exported in August versus 11,800 tonnes a month earlier. Overall exports totalled 127,300 tonnes in January-August 2021, compared to 145,500 tonnes a year earlier.
